The Oakland Tsunami swim club Mission is to "Build character and community through the Excellence of Swimming." Our club is part of a collaborative Non-Profit organization that supports the provision of competitive swimming for inner city youth of Oakland Ca, and its surrounding area. The Oakland Tsunami provides an engaging and nurturing environment where youth can learn at their pace. We also serve the community by exposing the synergies between USA Swimming and character building values such as Excellence, Purpose, and Perseverance. The Oakland Tsunami promotes positive reinforcement of Discipline, Dedication, and Teamwork.
